New video for Bag of bones!

Wednesday, January 9th 2013

Check out the new video above and read what the band have to say about it here…

“Thinking back over the creative process for the ‘Bag of Bones’ animated video, I nearly don’t know where to begin…but I think the first idea Jon suggested was a link to an old Bud Spencer (the Italian action-comedy actor) movie, with Bud messing up some guys in a gym. We played with the idea of a cartoon Russell Simins depicted as Bud Spencer messing up all the pretender rock n’ rollers, we kinda took it down that path, but with Bud/The Blues Explosion taking a wrong stage exit and ending up in psychedelic zombie film, greatly enhanced by Steve Pavlovsky’s brilliant Liquid Light Lab oil projections.

We also spoke a lot about animation references, there are nods to John Kricfalusi, Dr Who, Terry Gilliam (my favourite), and even though we did discuss Tex Avery and Chuck Jones at length, I don’t know if my and Joseph Jensen’s animation skills quite got there, but it was a lot of fun to create. Jon’s constant creative feedback of ‘make it darker and weirder,’ matched with references to beautiful Ezra Jack Keats children’s book illustrations, were always a joy to receive.”
